About Us

Welcome to O.L.D. Engineering, an award-winning provider of CNC precision-machined parts. Established in 1971, we have more than 40 years’ experience of precision engineering, specialising in the manufacturing of diesel engine components.

We cater for customers from a diverse range of industries, including automotive, aerospace and nuclear. With our comprehensive machining and sub-assembly facilities, we are able to offer a wide range of products, from one-off prototypes to batch runs, and produce complex components in a variety of materials using state-of-the-art multi-axis equipment.

We pride ourselves on our expertise and highly experienced team who combine in-depth knowledge with a flexible, customer-focused approach to ensure that clients receive continuously high levels of quality and service. Partnering an on-going investment in technology with an efficient manufacturing culture, we are able to provide products at competitive prices and with minimum lead-times.

As well as our practical capabilities, our strong ethos of re-investment, commitment to quality and the introduction of new technology mean that we maintain a lead on our competitors and ensure successful growth into the future. 

We owe much of our continued success to the strong family ties we have maintained over our long history. Clients really value the personal approach we offer and this, coupled with our proven ability to innovate, means that we are fully equipped to meet the individual needs of our customers. 



O.L.D. is committed to providing products and services of the highest quality. This is achieved through a mix of stringent testing, state-of-the-art machinery and continuous investment in development.

All of our products undergo a number of demanding inspection and test processes to ensure that they meet the most rigorous quality requirements.

As an EN ISO 9001:2015 accredited company, we use modern quality facilities and equipment to guarantee attention to detail and rapid response. Quality of our production processes is assured using our real-time, centrally monitored, computerised SPC and data capture systems.

Quality is also assured through our company-wide culture of professional development and investment in training. Our expert team brings a diverse range of skills to each element of our production process, and those skills are shared and taught between colleagues so that each new generation of O.L.D. engineers benefits from decades of experience.

All these factors help to ensure that we maintain a ‘right first time’ approach, meaning customers benefit from complete confidence and satisfaction.

We are not only committed to quality, but also to health and safety standards and minimising the impact our work has on the environment.



Automotive - The UK continues to be a leading manufacturer of automotive engines and O.L.D. has established a strong reputation in the sector as an engineering solutions provider. We have delivered high-quality components and prototypes to the automotive industry for more than 40 years. During this time, we’ve established long-standing, successful relationships with our clients and received a number of accolades for our service quality.

Aerospace - We understand the needs of an industry where complete precision and quality are of paramount importance. Our expert operatives and rigorous inspection processes ensure that all components are manufactured to meet the highest levels of specification and quality assurance. We are able to supply high-quality parts in a variety of materials to meet the requirements of clients in the aerospace sector.

Rail - The rail industry has been fundamental to the formation and continued success of O.L.D. Established in 1971, we originally supplied engine parts to the likes of British Rail, London Bus and Crane Fruehauf. We have continued to build on the strong reputation we developed during this time by supplying complex components to international organisations that specialise in the design and manufacturing of diesel engines.

Nuclear - We have been awarded the Fit 4 Nuclear (F4N) accreditation, meaning we are a trusted supplier of precision engineered components to the nuclear power sector. Key to our success is the ability to meet the changing need of our clients. This, coupled with our commitment to quality and safety, means we are now equipped to supply this industry with engineering solutions to meet its diverse requirements.



CNC Turning Capacity - With an extensive range of lathes we can offer turned parts from 10mm to 800mm diameter. Our live tooling and multiple spindle machines allow us to turn the most complex of parts, from bar or billet to castings, in a range of materials including plastics, aluminium, titanium and steels.

CNC Machining Centre Capacity - With a range of 3, 4 and 5 axis machining centres, both vertical and horizontal, we are able to machine most parts from basic drilling to complex 3D forms. Our vertical machines can take up to 2500mm x 960mm x 1000mm and our horizontal machines can manage up to 630mm x 630mm x 1000mm.

CNC Grinding Capacity - With a full range of CNC external grinding machines, we can offer grinding on up to 300mm diameter by 1000mm long. We also have the ability to grind single or multiple diameters in one operation leading to much greater accuracy.

Conventional Machines - To complement our CNC grinders, we offer internal, external and surface manual grinding which can be used on one-offs and small batches. With our manual grinder, we can deal with an internal capacity of up to 250mm diameter and surface grinding of 600mm x 300mm.

Inspection Equipment - In our temperature controlled inspection department we can offer the best in measuring equipment, including four CMMs, Tessa Laser scanner, hardness testing, surface finish testing and all other conventional inspection equipment. We can also offer Millipore cleanliness checks and NDT testing.
